Lung cancer is the nation’s leading cause of cancer death and the fifth most commonly diagnosed, yet, it receives very little publicity, funding, research or support.

To mark Lung Cancer Awareness Month this November, Lung Foundation Australia is calling for change by releasing a short film capturing the heart-breaking reality of being diagnosed with lung cancer, as well as a national Lung Cancer Scorecard exposing the true disparity in lung cancer care and the reforms needed.

With just 17% alive five years after their diagnosis of lung cancer, and only 1 in 10 diagnosed at the earliest stage, it is a race against time to improve outcomes. You can help Shine a Light on Australia’s biggest cancer killer. Your donation will support research that can offer breakthroughs, advocacy that can change outcomes and support services that offer hope.

Every dollar makes a difference. Watch the short film and donate today at shinealight.lungfoundation.com.au
